A complete bathroom transformation involves a lot of work and to get the exact finish you want its important to plan things carefully down to the last detail.
Our most recent work involves taking a bathroom from this:
The original bathroom was a small, awkward space. The idea was to make it a bigger, family bathroom with a luxury feel and design. Before the bathroom was started the boiler was replaced, which meant the airing cupboard could be knocked down along with a built-in wardrobe from the adjoining room to create a larger space. The door to the bathroom also needed moving, so in all, two walls were knocked down and rebuilt:
This allowed us to add a contemporary design feature in the form of a recess in the wall positioned above the bath:
Its important to think about what sort of lighting you want in your bathroom and if you want any extras before you get to the 1st fix stage. Lighting in a bathroom can make a real difference to how the finish product looks. Here the look was lighting, lighting and more lighting! And all can be achieved with energy efficient bulbs: main spotlights, a spotlight in the shower, LED’s in the recess and a vanity light, all with the correct IP ratings. Another option to think about is underfloor heating, we didn’t go for it in this case, but we did rip the floor up and pad the floor with lots of insulation:
The walls were boarded ready for plastering and tiling and the floors boarded over ready for tiling.
To make use of the awkward space the toilet lived in a separate shower enclosure was designed and 3D tiles from Topps Tiles were used for an individual look.
A Mira Atom mixer shower was fitted and where the roof slanted into the shower, it was clad with a treated wood to incorporate it into the look of the rest of the room:
An extra space saving technique we used was to fit a folding door:
The fixtures and fittings have all been picked to finish the bathroom transformation off to a high standard, but theres no point in spending all that money if the workmanship isn’t top quality too…
We think this bathroom transformation came up trumps! What do you think? Contact us at Renovate if you like the look of our work.
